Thrills and Chills Expected at New Venue for October Ending Race
Goshen, IN – October 21, 2016….The Supermodified Ultimate Pavement Racing Series, (SUPRS), will close out October with the 50 lap Black Kat Klassic on October 25 for the first time at Red Ball Raceway.
The race had been held for many years at the slightly banked 1/2 mile of Decatur Speedway in Illinois using the SUPRS W v6.0 mod for NASCAR Heat. The move to Red Ball Raceway in Kentucky also signals a move to rFactor, high-banks and nerve-wracking speed every lap.
The SUPRS 2016-17 Gold Crest Championship got underway last week with the Harvest of Speed opener, and for the first time, Bob Gangwer was victorious in this race.
In the 13 year history of SUPRS, there has never been a driver that has won the first two races of the season in a row, so Gangwer is looking to not only break that record, but also hoping to win his first ever Black Kat Klassic.
Defending Black Kat Klassic winner Rob Warren, who led a good part of the season opener at LaPorte, hopes to join Ray Sand, Jr., Myles Maxon, John Davidson and Carl Becker, as a multi-time Black Kat Klassic winner.
Becker was back in action after a summer off and looked good at LaPorte last week. He qualified second quick and ran in the top five at times, ending up sixth at the end of the race. His one downfall may be that he has very little track time in his rFactor sim racing supermodified, but he has been faster each time he’s taken it out on the Red Ball Raceway banks.
The fearless SUPRS thrill seekers take on high-banked 5/8 mile Red Ball Raceway October 25, 2016 beginning with practice which starts at 8:00pm. Time Trials will follow at 8:30pm and spine chilling racing gets under way with a special Crack the Whip race for the Fast Four qualifiers at 9:00pm.
